Jacob Fleece

Lets face it - I love wool! All kinds ;) Of course my own breed of Corriedale is my favorite, but I also really enjoy a good Jacob fleece. I am lucky to know a young woman who raises Jacobs as a hobby. Some years I am fortunate enough to get a few good fleeces from her; some years I am last year when the fleeces were stored wet in plastic bags and molded! 2005 was one of those fortunate years and I am afraid I may have gone overboard and brought home more fleece than I need. A familiar story...

This is a picture of one of the fleeces I am working on for myself right now - I love that raspberry rose color!
